TomTom Turn by Turn GPS - $100 in AppStore Now
TomTom iPhone navigation software has been rumored for over a year, and kept appearing in the media... and it's finally here.
Priced at a wallet-crunching $99.99, TomTom U.S. and Canada is just as good as the TomTom products - with a few big usability features that shine, mostly benefits of the iPhone OS itself. Pinch and zoom on the map works as expected, as well as plugging in an address from your recent searches or anyone in your contacts. Of course it also works in both landscape and portrait mode.
I haven't tried out the IQ Routes TomTom touts as "award-winning technology," but the premise is it calculates the smartest, most efficient route - not just the shortest - based on the actual driving experience of millions of TomTom users.
The app currently has maps for the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. The developer name they are using is TomTom International BV, which makes you think they'll be adding new countries soon... and at over 1.2 GB for this one, I'm betting they'll be separate apps. Hope you don't travel too much.
A car mount is listed from TomTom, although there's no word on pricing or availability yet... which is strange since they link to that page from their AppStore listing.

Yikes! thats a steep price point... i would have though since there not selling hardware included it would be less...
08-17-2009, 10:56 AM #4
wow, $100 seems a bit much, don't ya think?
08-17-2009, 10:57 AM #5
WOW $100 Bucks and then you have to buy the mount seperate??? not really worth it... Hopefully they will have a price drop or either give a free trial, before you have to make that much of an inve$tment...

Haha $100 and you can get a decent stand alone gps system that already comes with the windshield mount and stuff like that. This pricing is a huge mistake on tomtoms part if they even want to sell a decent amount of apps. Navigon is about have the price and it seems to have great reviews and such so I'm sure a lot of people will resort to that instead of paying a whopping $100 for the app without the accessories.

damn first off the price is 100$ that makes it not worth it for unjailbroken users. and second off the size takes up a whole GB of space epic fail
08-17-2009, 11:22 AM #10
Why would someone spend 100 bucks on this, if the built in map app does exactly the same thing?

They musta lost their friggin minds!!
I can buy a standalone GPS unit for less than $100.00!!!
Didnt they do a price point comparison with comparable apps? I guess they figure there's one born every minute... but I wasn't one of them! Is TomTom a division of apple?? lol
I guess i'll just wait to see what TeleAtlas comes up with.Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

Priced to high. You can buy a stand alone gps device for less.
$50 would of been more appropriate.

I would buy it, if the mount was included and a blow job.PS3 ID : glassJAw624 : add it
